New Zealand indigenous race, who migrated here between 900-1100AD. Were amazing warriors and navigators, the 28th Maori Battalion of the World Wars was praised by other countries as one of the best forces in the world. Maori are also credited for the invention of the modern war paradigm of trench warfare, invented during the New Zealand wars.
The main discrepency with Maori and non-Maori of NZ is the issue of the Treaty of Waitangi, which was written in two languages, and both hold differing meanings. The Human Rights Commission states that if such discrepencies exist, the indigenous version is to be deemed the official version. Of course the government ignored this. If you don't know the differences, read the Treaty (there are translations of both versions) and make your own decision. Know also that the single largest demographic on government benefits is white pensioners. Not maori "dole bludgers". Note also maori die younger and receive less treatment than non-maori for things like heart disease. So do not say Maori receive more 'privileges' than pakeha. My Uni fees are the same as everyone else. And for all of you who hate Maori but still do the haka at drunnken parties and wear taonga when you go overseas, you are dishonouring our culture with your two-faced visage.
For those who think we are getting unfair benefits, do some homework and learn the history. Parihaka, Orakei, there are many examples of travesties of justice by the Crown. The Tohunga Suppression Act, The Maori Land Court, shocking acts of injustice. Learn your history.
Foreigner: Hey thats a cool necklace! What does it mean?
Pakeha: I don't know. Its Maori though.
Foreigner: Mean tattoo, what is it?
Foreigner: Do you do the haka?
Pakeha: Yep! But...I don't know what that means either...
Self proclaimed land owners of New Zealand. In 1840 British settlers realised the lack of intelligence of the natives that they had recently encountered and decided to form the treaty of waitangi. In this treaty the maori signed away all their land in exchange for a few guns and bracelets. Sometime around 1900 the maori brain evolved to the point of having 2 brain cells, and they realised what a terrible mistake they had made. Ever since then the maori have been trying to seek revenge on the white man by selling him crappy tinny's, taking his shoes, and generally stealing everything that isn't nailed down. This type of behaviour is hardly suprising coming from a culture that actually beleives New Zealand was caught like a fish and pulled to the surface by one maori in a canoe. To this day, maoris still exist in new zealand inhabiting such areas as otara, mangere, and a million other shitty places you'd never have to go to if marijuana was legal.
"Duh thats rite bro you get 0.3 grams of weed for your $20, now you know how it feels"
"hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo"
"aw bro my cru of maori's is the baddest bro we can't even afford a spray can to tell people who we are"
Indigneous people of New Zealand, originating in South Pacific. Signatories to the Treaty of Waitangi, 1840. One of the national languages of NZ (The others being English and Sign).
Even the NZ Maori Rugby team can usually beat Wales
A race of people whom the New Zealand government seems to favour over the people of European decent in New Zealand. Maori receive such bonuses as:
- cheaper university fees
- extra money on government benefits (as if to encourage them)
- their own political party that only persons with maori decent can be in. (they can also be in the other parties if they wish)
Maori seem to have no morals whatsoever. Their favourite pastimes include drugs, alcohol and smoking behind the P.E shed. Some maoris prefer to beat up and steal from the elderly. No maori wears his own shoes.
The New Zealand Government seems to think they should encourage the maori race, but these days most criminals in NZ are of maori decent, so really they are encouraging them to be criminals, and therefore insuring the future of New Zealand to become one huge Otara.
"bro, hook a brother up aye? I'll smash ur white ass, you betta watch ur bak aye I'll get my black maori homies onto you"
A New Zealand people, traded everything for nothing, and now have buyers remorse, which will carry on for another hundred years. Supposedly the "natives" -this has been proven false, there were other people here first before them, who the maori ate. They are 10% of the general population, and 90% of the prison population. Go figure.
NZ Person: "Dude, grab us a beer?"
Maori: "Eh? Bears live in asia..."
People that claim to originally come from new zealand who were dumb enough to sign away there land for basically nothing, now they try to claim it back and call anyone that doesnt agree with them 'racist'. They also smell funny. they get a whole bunch of extra benifits from the government but still are the dumbest people in new zealand.
maori1: ow bro g ow, lets go steal some jandles ow
maori2; ow no ow, wats a jandal
A degenerative Race that arrived In New Zealand in the 1800's, established their ways in Grass huts and hunted their prey with the "Taiha," and were content with their under developed ways until the British arrived and formed a Government, transforming the country into a demographic, sophisticated place that once lacked intelligence. The signing of a Treaty instantly foreshadowed the misery of the decades to follow. A mistake that all Europeans have to accept and live with; A very angry race that steals, resorts to violence, lacks courage to an extreme extent (They carry out violence in packs), claims "Aotearoa" belongs to them and have broken down their cultural identity to socio-economic sponges that have become a burden to the advancement of the white race that saved their asses in the first place.
1) "Should we approve his welfare check?"

2) "Should we accept the Maori into Boy's High?"
"No. He can attend Hato Paora, an all Maori boys school instead"
3) "Who the f**k Stole My Bike?!"
"Te Rangi Tehuataka Hata"
"Oh ofcourse.. No surprises there"
Maori is an adjective habitually misused in New Zealand as a collective noun.
pronounced either maari or moeri if you want a job in TV,
academia, or public service.
Pronounced mow-ri by everyone else.
The literal meaning is "ordinary". That is how
the first group of people who arrived in NZ chose to describe themselves relative to the (slightly) later arrivals who they chose to call pakeha (outsider, alien, foreigner). New Zealand is an homogenised monocultural society (with terrible suppressed racial ethno-political tension). Some New Zealanders have some maori ancestry. None have only maori ancestry. Maori means maori person, a person with some maori ancestry.
In media and political usage "maori" is a collective noun used when attempting to sensationalise a news story or when promoting an outrageous political agenda for one's own personal benefit.
"Rangi is of maori descent"
"Many maori people are fine singers"
"maori are outraged"
(maori people do not have a hive mind - like the Borg on
"maori own the water"
("maori" is not an entity. It is a variable attribute of people,
people who already own or don't own the water in exactly the same way as all the other people who don't have that attribute )
